The symbolic steeple tower conveying the image of Manhattan is flooded by 5-minute light operation at 8:00pm and the color of light is changed according to the season. This makes the hotel into a landmark. In the building's public spaces, a subdues atmosphere is preserved using indirect lighting, chandeliers and accentuated light for pictures and furniture.
